I haven't had much of a chance to get some stitching in. Unfortunately the weather has turned humid and sticky and the dreaded sweaty hands are back in action. The other problem is that Aurelia will not sleep on her own in the evenings and I end up with her sleeping in my arms until late in the night. However, in the small number of hours I have snatched, I have made great progress on my Health and Happiness design. I can't believe how much more satisfying it is to work on linen. I know that I have been saying that a lot, but those who work on linen will understand. I have been using the Gentle Art Sampler threads and you can just make out the subtle colour variations. These are really great threads to use and can't wait to make more use of them.
What do you do with all your leftover bits of thread?
I have been collecting them putting them in a fancy wine bottle. It sits on the shelf in my craft room and every now and then I take them from my sewing basket and put them in the bottle. That is when Aurelia doesn't get to them first and eat them. The other day she grabbed the small pile of threads put them in her mouth and yelled out "YUM". Oh, well what every makes her happy and swallowing the threads won't do her any harm!
